View Full Version : [ubuntu] Convert a BIN Image from linux clonecd to ISO 9660 file ?

August 17th, 2010, 02:50 PM

I usually clone the cdrom with this command for bit to bit exact copy:

readom dev=$THECDDEV -clone -nocorr f="${szSavePath}.bin"

How can we convert those to ISO 9660 general standard ?

Also you can just dump them straight to iso, no need for bin/convert. I forget exactly how to do this, but I'm pretty sure you can
#it might not be exactly /dev/cdrom0 for you, could be just cdrom, or cdrom1, take a look and see what you have
#'if' is "infile", 'of' is "outfile
dd if=/dev/cdrom0 of=/home/$USER/filename.iso
# you might need to sudo:
sudo dd if=/dev/cdrom0 of=/home/$USER/filename.isoIf this command doesn't work, I just got some of the syntax wrong, dd is the command line tool to dump block devices (dump disk) (cd drive, hard drives, etc) to files, so do some googling for "dd dump cd to iso ubuntu" and you'll certainly come across pertinent informtion
